However, after 100 successful days in orbit, somehow the Ceres project has grown sentient and crashed back to Earth, creating a black crystalline mountain near where you and your lab partner are camping out. Soon, Max gets sucked inside and you have to follow him into the world the AI has created.
Obsidian is a unique adventure title, as it explores the subconscious minds of the two scientists and the AI itself.

* VisualPun: The Ornithopter makes its appearance inside a giant metallic hand that opens up. The hint book captions this with, "A plane in the hand is worth...?"

* OminousPipeOrgan: While in the Church of the Machine, sedate chapel music is playing as you walk around. Not so when the small mechanical spider is activated for the programming puzzle. As each section of the crossover chip is filled in, the music gets faster and faster and has more instruments added to it.

** Just when you think you're finally getting somewhere in the Bureau Realm, the vidbot in Immediate Action accepts your form and then cheerfully drops this like a ton of bricks: "Only, I'm afraid there's a terrible backlog! Come back in a year, [[ExactWords we'll take immediate action then]]. For the time being, CLOSED!"

* VoiceWithAnInternetConnection: Max occasionally appears within the dream worlds to talk to you, usually through some conduit; from overriding a VidBot's screen, to speaking through a field of stars in the Cosmology room, to appearing inside the Frame in the Sky.

* WhamLine: Once the final constellation in the Spider Realm's control room is completed, the voice you heard speaking of the four individual elements and their differences between machines and Max, now says, ''"And the Machine was complete. And the machine...({{beat}})...no longer needed Max."''

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Max, for the first half of the game. Later on he becomes [[spoiler: the DamselInDestress, as when you finally find him in the Conductor Realm, it turns out that Ceres imprisoned him inside a giant version of the PMA, under a painful swarm of endless nanobots.]]

* {{Bait and Switch}}: Subverted - it's a dream world, so naturally the goal would never actually be reachable.
** Max wants you to open a grate in the Spider Realm to reach him, but it's held down by one of the spider's feet. [[spoiler: Instead, the spider eats you alive]]
** Likewise, despite all your hard work to make the Frame in the Sky a 'regulation destination', the plane you and Bismuth are flying [[spoiler: breaks apart and changes into the next realm.]]

Added DiffLines:

* InfoDump: The sole purpose of Lilah's PDA at the beginning of the game, and there isn't much guidance on what you do and don't need to read through.


Added DiffLines:

* MoodWhiplash: The game starts in a peaceful and quiet forest, with a sense of calm solitude. Then suddenly you hear the Obsidian structure start to rumble, and Max lets out a bone-chilling scream. Helps that it's your cue that you've read everything you needed to in Lilah's PDA.
